It wasn't the highest standard hotel but it was far from the most expensive too. We found it very serviceable, only minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio bridge and on to the sights of Florence, whilst clean and comfortable. The staff assisted us in arranging secure parking for the car and were friendly and helpful during our stay. Breakfast was on... More

I read the reviews and looked at the hotel's website before booking this hotel. Everything looked good so we booked 3 nights here in September. Upon arrival we found our room (up on second floor with no elevator) was not like the website photo's showed. The shower had mould growing in it, and leaked onto floor, Bed needed replacing, (very...

This small hotel is clean, with good sized rooms, good beds and friendly and very helpful staff. It is in what was, for us, an excellent location, overlooking the river Arno, and a shortish walk across the river to the SMN railway station, and to the Ponte Vecchio and all the central tourist sites. But do not rush across the... More

Relais Il Cestello is a comfortable little hotel that's a bit outside the heart of Florence. If you're looking to hit the major tourist attractions in Florence it may not be the most convenient location for you. We had already done that earlier on our trip, so we were happy to get a little distance between us and the main... More

A quaint guest house rather than B&B. Breakfast is a selection of pastries, cakes and bread etc that is constantly left out so you make a cuppa all day and night if you so wish. This aspect was very good, although a little more fresh breakfast choice may have been better. However, for a few days, it's an ideal place... More

Although the hotel is on the other side of the Arno river, it is still within walking distance of the main attractions in Florence. If you prefer to stay away from the bustling touristy areas and crowds, you will not go wrong picking this hotel. The entrance to the hotel is located between two restaurants and was a bit hard...

Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in July. The hotel looks like it's somewhat out of the way, but it's actually very convenient to all the sights. It's also far enough away that it was quiet every night, but it could have been just our room. The hotel entrance was hard to find, located between two restaurants. The... More

This hotel is located along the river and is a good walking distance from the major Florence attractions. The room was spacious and well kept. The staff was helpful and breakfast was good. It is not the quietest hotel because there's an outdoor restaurant below and traffic along the river.

This cozy hotel is conveniently located in walking distance from the heart of Florence. Run by a Family who cares for guests and offers good hospitality. Needless to say it has the look of a Bed & Breakfast but provided with services of a hotel (concierge). We were given a wide triple room under the roof. Really nice for short... More

Conveniently located, very nice and clean hotel. We could breathe the real atmosphere of traditional living in Florence. The staff is incredibile friendly. Breakfast could be better (maybe not too much choice). If you travel by car either you are lucky and finds a parking in front of the hotel (but I cannot remember the rates) or you can leave... More
